Even strength needs support

Strength thrives in the presence of support. Therapy is a valuable tool for helping individuals develop and sustain their inherent power and resolve. It offers a private setting in which to examine your emotions, learn coping techniques, and gain self-awareness. This aids your success in life. By addressing emotional distress, therapy improves self-awareness, relationships, and well-being.

How I can help

Develop self-awareness

By helping you to become conscious of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, I can assist you in understanding yourself better and how you interact with the world around you. Self-awareness enhances personal growth by revealing strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement. It aids in informed decision-making and navigating challenging situations with clarity and confidence. It also enhances relationships and personal growth by examining values and beliefs.

Embrace self-acceptance

By accepting all aspects of yourself, including flaws and imperfections. Self-acceptance reduces self-judgment and criticism, fostering self-compassion and kindness. Prioritize well-being and happiness for a fulfilling life.

Nurture self-compassion

Practice self-compassion and empathy towards yourself, particularly in moments of adversity or setbacks. Self-compassion involves taking care of yourself and having the resilience and self-care skills to bounce back from challenges. By addressing stress and anxiety, it can contribute to improving your mental and emotional well-being. Developing self-compassion has the potential to significantly enhance both your relationships and your self-esteem.

Foster self-empowerment

By taking control of your life and believing in your abilities to achieve goals. Self-empowerment is using strengths to overcome obstacles and make positive changes. It encourages personal growth and confidence through responsibility for choices and actions. Fostering self-empowerment helps with assertiveness, boundaries, and decision-making. This leads to more fulfillment and satisfaction.

Telehealth counseling

For individuals, couples and families. 

I am also trained and/or have expertise in the treatment of dysfunctional anger, anxiety, bipolar disorder, BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder), depression, grief, impulse control issues, mood disorders, intrusive thoughts and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

I provide cost-effective telehealth counseling services, enabling you to conveniently access therapy from the comfort of your own home or any location of your choice. This eliminates the necessity of travel or commuting. Furthermore, telehealth counseling offers the advantage of flexible appointment scheduling, allowing the integration of therapy sessions into hectic lifestyles.

I specialize in helping people with addictive behaviors, depression, personality disorders, persistent mental illness, anxiety, life changes, low self-esteem, relationship issues, and helping people find their identity and purpose.

Yes, we take your insurance, 

I currently accept these insurances: Cigna, Aetna, Oscar Health, Oxford Health, Blue Cross Blue Sheld, United Healthcare. For all other insurances, you may have out-of-network benefits, which means that insurance will reimburse you for a portion of our session cost. I have partnered with Thrizer to handle the out-of-network process automatically for you. With Thrizer, you will only have to pay your co-insurance for our sessions, instead of paying my full fee and waiting for reimbursements. This can save you on average 70% upfront on our sessions. During our intake process, I can help you verify if you have out-of-network benefits and how much your co-insurance would be.

If you don't see your insurance provider on this list, don't worry - we are constantly adding new carriers and may be able to accept your insurance in the near future.

How to get started

How to get started

To begin, make an appointment or consultation using the online scheduling tool. A consultation will help you decide whether I am a good fit for you. However, it's perfectly acceptable for some people to skip the consultation if they already know what they want.

Counseling can be started in 3 simple steps.

Second, complete the intake questionnaire; it will take about 15 minutes to complete online.

Finally, we will start our sessions by providing you with a safe and confidential space to explore your thoughts and emotions. Together, we can improve your mental health and make your life more enjoyable.


Please chose the correct time zone when scheduling your appointment
